Hairy Mushrooms (Rhodactis sp.) are small, round anemones that show many different colors and patterns. Individuals form compact colonies over reef rock which resemble some hard corals. These mushroom have a hairy or beaded appearance to the surface of their disks, while the common Discosoma sp. mushrooms have a smoother surface. The color of surface can be striped, solid in color, edged with a different color, or have any other number of patterns and variations. The mushrooms range in color from brown to green to blue and in rare cases orange or red.

These mushrooms are carnivorous and photosynthetic. While they will take food from the water column and even feed on larger items like brine shrimp, they benefit from higher lighting and will show brighter colors under more intense light. They should be given ample space in aquariums as they may damage other corals with prolonged contact. It is common for an individual mushroom to come off of a rock and settle somewhere else in the aquarium or for a mushroom to split into multiple mushroom to spread or start a new colony.

Though mushrooms come in a variety of colors and patterns, they grow in colonies on rocks and therefore there will normally be only one type of mushroom on each rock. The type, size of individual mushrooms and number of mushrooms on the rock may vary. If certain types or colors are desired, please contact the Livestock Department at 1-877-367-4377 for availability.
